Abstract

A new cultivar of Aloe plant named ‘EC-ALOE-1808’ that is characterized by dark green leaves with pale yellow dots, leaf margins with non-pointed ridges that are pink-red in color, an erect tulip shaped rosette plant form and a compact habit.

Description

Botanical classification: Aloe hybrid.

Variety denomination: ‘EC-ALOE-1808’.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Aloe plant botanically known as Aloe hybrid and hereinafter referred to by the cultivar name ‘EC-ALOE-1808’.

‘EC-ALOE-1808’ originated from the crossing of the female or seed parent, Aloe hybrid ‘Carmine’ (not patented) with the male or pollen parent, Aloe hybrid ‘Christmas Carol’ (not patented). The crossing was conducted in 2014 in Sappemeer, Netherlands. The resulting seeds were subsequently planted and grown. The cultivar ‘EC-ALOE-1808’ was selected by the inventor in 2016 in a controlled environment as a single plant within the progeny of the stated cross in a cultivated area of Sappemeer, Netherlands.

Asexual reproduction of the new cultivar ‘EC-ALOE-1808’ first occurred by leaf cuttings in 2016 in Sappemeer, Netherlands. Since that time, under careful observation, the unique characteristics of the new cultivar have been uniform, stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations of asexual reproduction.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The following represent the distinguishing characteristics of the new Aloe cultivar ‘EC-ALOE-1808’. These traits in combination distinguish ‘EC-ALOE-1808’ as a new and distinct cultivar apart from other existing varieties of Aloe known by the inventor.

    • 1. Aloe ‘EC-ALOE-1808’ exhibits dark green leaves with pale yellow dots.
    • 2. Aloe ‘EC-ALOE-1808’ exhibits leaf margins with non-pointed ridges that are pink-red in color.
    • 3. Aloe ‘EC-ALOE-1808’ exhibits an erect, tulip shaped rosette plant form.
    • 4. Aloe ‘EC-ALOE-1808’ exhibits a compact habit.

The closest comparison cultivars are Aloe ‘Spider’ (not patented) and Aloe ‘Jurassic Dragon’ (not patented). ‘EC-ALOE-1808’ is distinguishable from ‘Spider’ by the following characteristics:

    • 1. Aloe ‘EC-ALOE-1808’ exhibits dark green leaves with pale yellow dots. In comparison, the leaves of ‘Spider’ are pale green with white dots.
    • 2. Aloe ‘EC-ALOE-1808’ exhibits leaf margins with non-pointed ridges that are pink-red in color. In comparison, the leaf margins of ‘Spider’ have short pointed teeth that are pink-white in color.
    • 3. Aloe ‘EC-ALOE-1808’ exhibits a compact, erect, tulip shaped rosette plant form. In comparison, the plant form of ‘Spider’ is not rosette in shape and is less compact.
    • 4. Aloe ‘EC-ALOE-1808’ exhibits leaves that are shorter and less-elongated than the leaves of ‘Spider’.

‘EC-ALOE-1808’ is distinguishable from ‘Jurassic Dragon’ by the following characteristics:

    • 1. Aloe ‘EC-ALOE-1808’ exhibits leaf margins with non-pointed ridges that are pink-red in color. In comparison, the leaf margins of ‘Jurassic Dragon’ have pointed teeth that are red in color.
    • 2. Aloe ‘EC-ALOE-1808’ exhibits an erect, tulip shaped rosette plant form. In comparison, the plant form of ‘Jurassic Dragon’ is more open and not as erect.

‘EC-ALOE-1808’ is distinguishable from the female parent plant, by the following characteristics:

    • 1. Aloe ‘EC-ALOE-1808’ exhibits dark green leaves with pale yellow dots. In comparison, the leaves of the female parent plant are green with red dots.
    • 2. Aloe ‘EC-ALOE-1808’ exhibits a compact habit. In comparison, the female parent plant is even more compact in habit.

‘EC-ALOE-1808’ is distinguishable from the male parent plant by the following characteristics:

    • 1. Aloe ‘EC-ALOE-1808’ exhibits dark green leaves with pale yellow dots. In comparison, the leaves of the male parent plant are purple-green with pink-red dots.
    • 2. Aloe ‘EC-ALOE-1808’ exhibits leaf margins with non-pointed ridges that are pink-red in color. In comparison, the leaf margins of the male parent plant have pointed teeth that are red in color.
    • 3. Aloe ‘EC-ALOE-1808’ exhibits a compact habit. In comparison, the male parent plant is even more compact in habit.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWING

The accompanying photograph illustrates the distinguishing traits of Aloe ‘EC-ALOE-1808’. The photograph shows an overall view of a 25 week old plant. The photograph was taken using conventional techniques and although colors may appear different from actual colors due to light reflectance, it is as accurate as possible by conventional photographic techniques.

BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION OF THE PLANT

The following is a detailed description of the new Aloe cultivar named ‘EC-ALOE-1808’. Data was collected in Sappemeer, Netherlands from 25 week old plants grown in a glass greenhouse in 10.5 cm. diameter containers. The time of year was Autumn and the temperature range was 21-24 degrees Centigrade during the day and 18-21 degrees Centigrade at night. The light level was natural light level. No photoperiodic treatments or growth retardants were used. Color determinations are in accordance with The Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart 2015 edition, except where general color terms of ordinary dictionary significance are used. The growing requirements are similar to the species. ‘EC-ALOE-1808’ has not been tested under all possible conditions and phenotypic differences may be observed with variations in environmental, climatic, and cultural conditions, however, without any variance in genotype.
